November 16, 2011

  • Sludge Trade Group Hosts Poster Contest: As every year, the US Composting Council is hosting a poster contest for its annual PR campaign, “International Compost Awareness Week” (2012′s is May 7-May 12). Entries are due by November 30. Read about the 2011 PR campaign on PRWatch here: ”USCC’s members include Synagro, the largest processor of sewage sludge in the United States with revenues of over $300 million annually. The ‘International Compost Awareness Week’ is coordinated by Jeff Ziegenbein of the giant Inland Empire Utility Agency (IEAU) in Southern California. IEUA supplies the sewage sludge ‘compost’ that is resold by companies like Kellogg Garden Products, which supplies the sewage sludge-based products to local Home Depot and Lowe’s garden centers.”
  • Brattleboro, Vermont Sewage Plant to Install Digester and Spread Sludge on Soil: According to a BioCycle article (subscription only) reprinted on InsuranceNewsNet (11/10), “To meet the town’s sustainability commitments, the project is designed to reuse existing facilities and structures to the extent possible and upgrade the biosolids treatment operation to produce Class A biosolids that can be land applied. The three existing digesters will be converted into a twophase anaerobic process.”
